Average citation per nano-article
It is the average number of times the nano-articles published within a year have been cited in the Journal Citation Reports.
Abbreviation:Average citation per nano-article
h-Index of nano-articles
This field displays the h-index count and is based on a list of publications ranked in descending order by the Times Cited count. The h-index is the number of item which is in the h rank of the mentioned ranking and have at least "h" citations. For example, an h-index of 20 means there are 20 items that have 20 citations or more. This metric is useful because it discounts the disproportionate weight of highly cited papers or papers that have not yet been cited.
Abbreviation:h-Index of nano-articles
ISI indexed nano-articles

Total number of citations to nano-articles
The total number of times all records have been cited: This field displays the total number of citations to all of the nano-articles in the set of search results.
Nanotechnology patents in USPTO
The indicator shows the number of nanotechnology granted patents in USPTO. According to ISO/TS 18110 (First Edition 2015-08-15), the definition of nanotechnology patents is “patents that include at least one claim related to nanotechnology or patents classified with an IPC classification code related to nanotechnology such as B82.
Nanotechnology published patent applications in USPTO
The indicator shows the number of nanotechnology patents applications published (but not yet granted) in USPTO. According to ISO/TS 18110 (First Edition 2015-08-15), the definition of nanotechnology patents is “patents that include at least one claim related to nanotechnology or patents classified with an IPC classification code related to nanotechnology such as B82.
